Over 15 million people have taken to the rails of Wicksteed Park Railway since it first opened in 1931. It was the last feature of the park to be added during the lifetime of the parks founder Charles Wicksteed and is supported by the Friends of the Wicksteed Park Railway.

Wicksteed Park Railway takes visitors around the natural parkland and along the recently restored park lakeshore. Wicksteed Park Railway is Britain’s most popular 2 ft (610 mm) narrow narrow-gauge railway.
